Julie Angela Strange, 53, of Arlington, Texas, unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, August 7, 2022. Julie was born in Abilene, Texas to Jerry and Judy (McCartney) English on November 21, 1968.

Julie was the mother to 2 beautiful children, Cole (21) and Claire (14), and was very active in their schools and extracurricular activities as she held various leadership positions in PTA, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts just to name a few. Julie volunteered her time regularly to support others through the church and other community organizations and would do anything for anyone as she always put others before herself.

Julie’s selfless acts and commitment to others was evident even at the very end as she was participating at a service project with her children when she collapsed unexpectedly of sudden cardiac arrest. She will be missed greatly and her impact on others will never be able to be measured. She was accepting of all and a true friend to all that she met.

  5. CandleImageI had known Julie since I was a child as her Mom and my Dad grew up in Tye together. My Dad said there wasn’t a better or nicer family than the McCartneys. I hadn’t talked to Julie since high school and then her Mom Judy passed away. I messaged her through Facebook and we started talking and did so pretty regularly over the past year and 3 months. Julie was the kindest, most loyal, and the most positive person I have ever known. Robby, Cole, Claire, Jay, Jason, Kelli
    W and Jerry you may not know me but I knew everything about you. Julie adored her family and constantly talked about them in such a positive light. Julie was an Angel on earth and I feel sure she will continue in that role in heaven with her Mom and grand mother that she so dearly loved. My heart, my thoughts and my prayers are with you all.

  6. I worked with Julie at State National during the time Cole was born. I wanted to let you guys know that Julie was one of the best bosses I’ve ever had. She was so kind and brilliant. She displayed all the fruits of the spirit and inspired others to be great. She will be missed greatly without a doubt. Praying for peace and comfort for your families. God bless you all.
